SOLIDWORKS Costing is available in SOLIDWORKS Professional and SOLIDWORKS Premium. Costing for assemblies is only available in SOLIDWORKS Premium only.
You can view the bounding box nesting layout on the last sheet when you have multiple sheets in the lot and you can change between the first and last page. You can also resize and scale the Bounding Box Nesting Preview while maintaining the original aspect ratio.
The performance of feature recognition to handle special geometry cases is enhanced. New tools and workflow improvements are introduced to streamline and speed up the costing process.
Manufacturers on the MySOLIDWORKS Manufacturing Network can upload their sheet metal templates so that users can access them in the SOLIDWORKS software. Users seeking to cost their sheet metal parts can also view the manufacturer information and contact them.
You can customize machining and sheet metal templates to more accurately reflect the manufacturing process for creating parts. You can use unique sheet metal rules, unique machining rules, or common sheet metal and machining rules for handling special geometry cases.
While costing an assembly, you can either use a Flat Tree mode or a Nested Tree mode. You can also cost subassemblies or apply purchased cost to them.
You can switch to a time-based Costing method in the sheet metal template for the cut operations. You have more flexibility for data input and you can also calculate the time taken to manufacture a sheet metal part using the input parameters.
